[[SPOILER]] 23. Talking To My CountryTalking To My Country by Stan GrantMy rating: 4 of 5 starsStan Grant is an award-winning Australian journalist; in a lot of ways he is similar to Ta-Nehihi Coates, whom he references a couple of times.Talking To My Country is a frank and direct statement of what it is like to be Aboriginal in today's Australia. Grant makes the point that the abuses and depredations that so horrify us now and not that far in the past that his family can...
I chose Cuir Ottoman today.Sprayed too much, but I think I got away with it. I just bought a leather watch band, and the instructions say to avoid coming in contact with perfume. Have you guys encountered that? I can't say I've noticed any issues with my watch band before.
Ormonde Jayne Man.
I am feeling just as warm with my notch lapel as with an oversized one. It may bother you, but "aiming for a classic aesthetic" was not remotely on my list of priorities. I'm gratified that I have your permission to have a notch lapel.
I got out Pardon today. This one is heavy on the oud and has quite a deal of projection. Much more intrusive than most of the scents that I wear, but in a good way.
No great reason. TBH it didn't really come up, because we were talking about copying a coat in the shop that I liked the look of.
MP&G Parfum d'Habit. Learned opinion from the wife: "God, that's strong!".
I'd describe it as a blue-gray wool, with a diamond pattern. Here's a better photo of it, in daylight.
Quite happy with today. Shirts: Alfred Dunhill, Zegna Couture, Charvet: Huntsman navy shadow stripe suit. The name on the "made for" label is intriguing: Christian Kimber suede loafers. (Kimber is/was an SF member, and his shoes are rocked by lots of the Aussie Members cadre). Tiffany cut crystal perfume bottle, along with a bunch of other perfume and toiletries. Notably Le Labo toiletries - tres niche.
L'Artisan's Tea For Two today - the old one. This is one of my favourite tea fragrances, but it does go a bit too sweet on me after a few hours. Probably leans a little towards the feminine.
